Weekend Courier - - Sport -

KWINANA Cricket Club’s sec­ond­grade team scraped into the One­Day fi­nal de­spite de­feat, while Fifth Grade put on an im­pres­sive dis­play to claim vic­tory in their last one-day match of the sea­son on Satur­day

Sec­ond Grade trav­elled to Hil­ton Palmyra with the op­por­tu­nity of claim­ing a home grand fi­nal with a win. Kwinana won the toss and de­cided to bat first.

Un­for­tu­nately, this is where the pos­i­tives ended, as Kwinana then rolled for 56.

Hil­ton Palmyra chased the to­tal down com­fort­ably and ended the in­nings on 6-158.

De­spite the loss, Kwinana scraped into the grand fi­nal by 0.22 points over third-placed Madding­ton.

The fi­nal will be a re­match at Melville Re­serve against the un­de­feated Hil­ton Palmyra on Fe­bru­ary 18.

Fifth Grade took on CBC at home in their fi­nal one-day game of the sea­son. Af­ter losing the toss they were put into the field.

CBC were re­stricted to 6-133 thanks to a great all-round ef­fort from the bowlers, with Steve Ni­chols end­ing with 2-17.

The run chase started shak­ily at 3-39 but an out­stand­ing part­ner­ship of 104 be­tween Kim Koth­stein (52) and Roy Field (39) gave vic­tory and pushed Kwinana's to­tal to 9-184.

Sec­ond and Fifth grades re­sume two-day matches to­mor­row.

One-Day Fs trav­elled to Ar­madale in round 13. Kwinana made a com­pet­i­tive to­tal of 7-148.

Ni­cholas Tolotti top-scored with his first 50 of the sea­son, but Ar­madale made 6-190 to claim a 42-run vic­tory.

SJ Blues for­feited to One-Day Cs.

Sec­ond Grade suc­cumbed but made the fi­nal, while Fifth Grade was in sparkling form.
